Hello! So you are looking for gift ideas for a tween boy…. Well I’m a tween (actually I’m 12) and a boy, so I figure I am an expert on tween boy gift ideas!  I cannot guarantee that the boy you are shopping for will go dancing around the room screaming with joy. But, I can say that I have two brothers (a ten year old … well in two weeks and a 13 year old) and they love these items too.

Tween Boy Gift Ideas

As I’ve gotten older, I started getting more into technology, things like RC helicopters, RC cars, and other things, but I still like my Legos, although now I am becoming more attracted to buildings and architecture.  Note: these are not in favorite to least favorite order, they are just random.  


1.  LEGO Architecture sets.  I have the White House but really want to get the Imperial Hotel!  It is huge!

 2.  LEGO Minecraft.  I have the Micro World set but would love to get The Village, and the Nether.


3.  RC helicopter (for beginners).

 4.  RC car.

 5.  Yu-Gi-Oh Trading card game.


6.  Risk board game.  Our best friends just gave us this game and we love it!

 7.  Cannon EOS Rebel T3i.  I know this is a big gift, but I have been showing maturity and have been taking really good care of all my electronic equipment.  We just got one for me and my brothers.  I do recommend if you get your tween/teen something this expensive, get the drop insurance too!  My mom did 🙂

8.  Raspberry Pi (just search it)… and a guide to go with it.  This is a way to get tweens / teens programming.  My Dad is the Director of Applications for a college and they have a whole room of Raspberry pis for there students. I.Want.One!

9.  A subscription to a technology education site like  We took photography lessons there last year and LOVED it.  We want a new subscription.  



10.  A friendly pet. (A turtle, cat, dog, hamster, guinea pig …  I have two turtles, 30 chickens, 3 cats, a dog and would gladly take more.  It is a great way to teach teens responsibility.  I have to feed and water my chickens and put them up every night.  My dad lets them out in the morning.  I also feed our cats.  My younger brother gives them water daily.  We also have two turtles that we both feed and take care.  We love our animals!

I hope this list of my favorite items will help you choose a gift for the tween boy on your shopping list!  Be sure to check out my other articles… especially all my articles about my chickens!  

See ya’ soon!
